    I made up both transfer case shifters and the one linkage. I have to wait for my transfer case adapter for the rear to be finished so I can make the other linkage. I used a couple of D18 knobs. :D

    Got one more piece of the puzzle, well actually 5 pieces. :D 35x10.5 R16 TSL's for $200 with 75% or more tread. Anyone need some landrover wheels? 5 on 6.5 bolt pattern.

    I love those tires! Been dreaming about building a dedicated wheeler for myself lately and can’t help but peruse the ads for deals. Well done!

    I'm trying to build this whole truck on a budget. When I'm done, I'll figure out how much it cost total.

    Got the 5.3 in today and the th400 mounted up to it! Just waiting on my transfer case adapter. The freebie forklift is very handy.

    I cut the bubbafied rear frame off the K10 and welded a suburban frame on. This give me the proper spring geometry and I now have a rear mount fuel tank with a TBI fuel pump which is needed for the LS swap. Oh, and I also made it a K5 Blazer wheel base. :D
